Continuing Education WD4336
Public Health Ethics Forum: Ethical Dilemmas in Rural Health
This educational activity is designed to reduce the gap in awareness regarding factors that impact the health of rural areas and populations. Subject matter experts will explain and illustrate these factors through data, programmatic activities, and personal experiences. This forum will address the educational gap through increasing participants’ ability to describe – the relationship between place of residence and health; characteristics that put rural residents at higher risk for morbidity and mortality; ways that addressing public health ethics issues can decrease disparities in rural areas and populations; and the importance of interprofessional collaboration in addressing public health ethics issues.
By the end of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the relationship between place of residence and health.
- List three characteristics that put rural residents at higher risk for morbidity and mortality.
- List two ways that addressing public health ethics issues can decrease disparities in rural areas and populations.
- Describe the importance of interprofessional collaboration in addressing public health ethics issues.
